Ariana Grande has officially been hitched to fiancé Dalton Gomez. The 27-year-old had a private wedding over the weekend, i.e., May 15th and 16th, at their home in Montecito, California.
According to reports, the wedding had less than 20 guests, including both sides of the family. TMZ reported that, unlike a traditional “ceremony,” the pair held their marriage in an informal manner and casually exchanged their vows, suggesting the couple may or may not have planned the big day impulsively.
It must be noted that Grande and Gomez have been in a long relationship but kept their love life private. However, the two have been seen together publicly for well over a year.
